Francia Russell Center in Way of Revised Sound Transit Route
Posted 11 July 2013 - 11:45 PM
According to the article, the two identified solutions mean either the demolition of the building, which PNB prefers, or a set of modifications to the existing building.
I hope the company either gets the option they want or Sound Transit finds a reason to re-revise the routing. The Francia Russell Center reaches a population for whom it would be impractical to commute to Seattle, and at least two PNB dancers have come through the ranks to join the company.

Fiddlesticks -- it's a lovely facility, and as Helene points out, a big advantage to families living in the more suburban Eastside.

If they have the same experience negotiating with Sound Transit that merchants in my neighborhood did when they were acquiring land for a light-rail station, it will be difficult to get enough compensation to relocate.

Hopefully, as one of the major arts institutions in the area, they will have strong political backing in their negotiations.

They will have to work hard to replace this facility -- it was custom designed for the school, and is as functional as it is lovely. (not something you always get in dance studios!)
